Poem by Zach Trebino


 

the best part of shellfish is its seeping brine

the foam of a taut mollusk yields calm.

a gull breathes brine and sunlight –
               swims wreathed in colored sand.

thoughtless hands turn back eyelashes
to disguise their joy.

delirium wanders, bruised and breathless;
               a tremendous bed beckons,
               brined in tobacco and sex.

Zach Trebino populates the world with absurdly grotesque performances, plays, and texts. His work has been published in journals including Noctua, From Sac, Crab Fat, deCOMP, Buck Off, LIGHTHOLE, The Clockwise Cat, MUSES, POPPED, and Black Box Literary Magazine, among others. His performances have been seen in cities throughout the United States, and his plays have been produced regionally and internationally. He is the runoff from the apogee of nothingness, the outcome of a surrealist’s wet dream, a coded message sent to you from your pre-conscious brain telling you to “WAKE UP!” Zach lives and works in Philadelphia, PA.

Allison Goldin is an artist living in California. Her work is a collection of spontaneous drawings from the imagination. The most common link throughout her art are the semi-recognizable creatures scattered amongst and bringing together the surrounding doodles.
